1. Corneal abrasion two weeks ago on Libby Sweetpea's right eye with emergency call visit. Not healed yesterday, so 2nd vet visit. A plastic lens on the eye to hold in strong antibiotics with an Elizabethan Collar of Shame that has to be worn for four days. But OUCH, out came the plastic lens in the middle of the night, and a 3rd visit to the vet again this afternoon for another lens stain and abrasion.
2. A baby sweater being knitted up for Jackie who is in her third trimester with Jackson. Jackie is a huge Denver Broncos football fan, and I am sure she will be ensuring Baby Jackson will be also. This is almost finished:
Stray Cats. The shipping was costly, but where else have you ever seen orange and blue sock yarn? The pattern is Beyond Puerperium, by Kelly Brooker and is an ingenious little knit.
3. An outdoor decades old rocker that needs a re-finish. Sanded and ready for new stain:
The stain mix: an ounce of oil paint, a scant cup of turpentine, a scant quarter cup of boiled linseed oil. Stay tuned. A previous post here explains it all. Also this post gives a true recipe for wood stain.
4. Chicken Tikki Masala for dinner. The hub will grill the chicken and likely make the recipe if I can convince him that I am still refinishing that rocker. (He does NOT like painting.)
Linking up with Tami at Work in Progress Wednesday
